Tracking Scott Walker’s quavering stance on federal stimulus money

Courtesy of Bruce Murphy of Milwaukee Magazine:

Consider this timeline: Jan. 6: County Executive Scott Walker says he won’t accept federal stimulus funding; Jan. 7: Walker gets roasted by various prominent local observers; Jan. 9: Walker backs off, says he would accept some of the aid; Jan. 11: Walker writes an op-ed for Journal Sentinel explaining why it’s actually a terrible idea to accept such federal funding. At this point, does anyone understand what Walker’s actual position is on this issue? Does Walker? I’d ask him to explain, but that might muddle things more.

How or why one commenter thinks that this signifies Walker being “consistent, and as alwasy, [sic] right on the issue” is beyond me. Unless he means Walker’s continual vasillation is consistent, which I would have to agree with, as it is quite certainly true.
